Samsung Comeback SGH-T559

The Good The Samsung Comeback SGH-T559 has plenty of features, including quad-band support, 3G, a full HTML browser with Flash Lite support, and GPS. It also has very good call quality.

The Bad The Samsung Comeback has a clunky design, plus the microSD card slot is behind the battery. The keyboard is on the small side.

The Bottom Line If you don't mind its bulky appearance, the Samsung Comeback is one of the most feature-packed messaging phones T-Mobile has to offer.

Samsung Comeback SGH-T559

T-Mobile hasn't been quite as aggressive as other carriers in rolling out messaging-centric phones, unless you count smartphones like the Sidekick. The only messaging phones in its stable have so far been the Samsung Gravity SGH-T459, which looks a lot like the Samsung Rant from Sprint, and the Samsung SGH-T349, which only has a partial keyboard. Samsung and T-Mobile have partnered again to come up with yet another messaging phone, dubbed the Samsung Comeback SGH-T559.

Similar to the LG enV3, it has a flip design, dual displays, and both a keypad and a QWERTY keyboard. But the real surprise lies in its features: it has a 2.0-megapixel camera, a HTML browser with Flash Lite, 3G support, stereo Bluetooth, and a music player. Though we're not wowed by the design--and we're not crazy about the name--we're overall pleased with the functionality and performance of the Comeback SGH-T559. It is available now for $129.99 with a two-year service agreement with T-Mobile
